Celebrated cartoonist and New Yorker cover artist Seth gives us the fictional life of George Sprott. On the surface, George seems a charming, foolish old man--but who is he? And who was he? Told as a patchwork tale, we come to know George, piece by piece, in a series of ''interviews'', flashbacks and personal reminiscences. It is a story about time, identity, loss, and the pervasiveness of memory. Though ultimately this is the story of a man's death, Seth leavens it with humor, restraint and a light touch.
